Federal Tax Credit Program for Qualifying Air Conditioning & Heating Equipment
The Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010 provides for federal tax credits on qualifying, high-efficiency residential heating and cooling products and systems (HVAC) through December 31, 2013.
This program is an extension of the federal tax credits that were in effect during 2009, 2010, and 2011.
The maximum amount an eligible homeowner may receive in federal tax credits for purchasing and installing qualifying products, whether those purchases are in the form of upgraded insulation, windows, HVAC equipment or other eligible improvements, is now 10% of the cost of the improvement, including installation costs, up to $500 (with maximum per-category amounts listed below).
The $500 tax credit amount is reduced by the total amount of residential energy property credits a homeowner has claimed for purchases between 2006 and 2013. If a residential homeowner has already claimed single-family home tax credits of $500 or more from improvements made prior to 2013, he or she cannot claim any new tax credits during 2013.
All furnaces and boilers, whether fueled by natural gas, propane or fuel oil, must have an AFUE rating of 95% or higher to be eligible.
Products or units must be installed between January 1, 2009, and December 31, 2013, to be eligible for tax credits.

So you’ve been told that you have a rusted out drain pan by your air conditioning and heating company. There is reason to be concerned! If the secondary pan is rusted out and leaking it is very likely that you will have water coming through your ceiling.
A Rusted Out Secondary Air Conditioning System Drain Pan
This secondary pan is actually the overflow drain pan for the air conditioning unit. If something happens to the main drain pan then the water over flows into the secondary pan and normally drains thru a pipe outside the home. If it is rusted it will leak through your ceiling.
Water normally should not collect in the secondary drain pan. If it is you have one of these problems with your air conditioner:
Rusted out main drain pan
Stopped up drain line
Dirty evaporator coil
The rusted out drain pan is probably the most serious of the issues above. If the pan is rusted out then the evaporator coil will need to be replaced. The good news is that today most main drain pans are made of plastic so they will never rust!
A stopped up drain line or a dirty evaporator coil are simple maintenance issues and can easily be remedied.
Here is what a typical blower coil looks like with a properly installed main drain pan:
Notice the new secondary drain pan under the unit. The system is also properly sealed to ensure that there are no air leaks.
Why you ask? January is one of the least busy months for an air conditioning and heating contractor. Most people are playing catch up on all the bills and recovering from the hustle and bustle of the holidays. Add to that that the weather is relatively mild or at least settled into a rather predictable pattern. So people just aren’t thinking about improvements to their HVAC system. This makes for a really slow month. Kind of makes us feel like the Maytag man!
This however, creates a perfect scenario for some one that has been putting of the dreaded job of replacing a duct system. You get the best service and pricing of the entire year!
Why Replace Your Duct System in January?
It’s cool in your attic and my technicians can spend extra time doing a super job on your duct system. Ever tried replacing ducts in a Texas attic in JULY? Most contractors won’t even attempt that!
Our business slows down a bit this month, so we would love to earn your business with some very advantageous pricing!
You won’t miss the heating or air conditioning being off sporadically as we replace the ducts. If we did it in the summer – you might not be as comfortable during the process.
We have crews available NOW – Now waiting.
You’ll reap the benefits of a comfortable home plus enjoy the energy savings that a properly insulated and leak free duct system can give you.

Is someone in your home suffering from headaches, nausea, or vomiting? Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning are often mistaken for the flu because the deadly gas goes undetected in a home. Prolonged exposure can lead to brain damage and even death.
Each year in America, unintentional carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning claims more than 400 lives and sends another 20,000 to the hospital. There are simple steps you can take to protect yourself from deadly carbon monoxide fumes.
Install at least one carbon monoxide alarm with an audible warning signal near sleeping areas
Have a qualified professional check all fuel burning appliances, furnace, venting and chimney systems at least once a year.
Never use your oven or stove to heat your home.
Never keep a automobile running in the garage
When purchasing an existing home have a qualified HVAC service technician evaluate the integrity of the heating system.
What to do if You Suspect Carbon Monoxide in Your Home?
If illness is a factor:
Evacuate all occupants immediately and call 911
Do not re-enter the home
Call a qualified professional to test for carbon monoxide and repair the source of the CO
If no one is feeling ill:
Silence the alarm
Turn off all appliance and sources of combustion
Ventilate the home by opening doors and windows
Call a qualified professional to investigate the source of possible CO buildup.

If so then call the Professional Air Duct Cleaning Company, Vanderford Air. They have over 25 years experience improving indoor air quality. They are the leaders in Air Duct Cleaning from Houston to Galveston.
Vanderford Air uses a patented air Duct Cleaning process in which a specialized vacuum is attached to the indoor unit causing a negative pressure on ducting system. Then a power rod cleaning system is inserted into each vent. This power rod cleans and blows dust and debris back towards and into the vacuum system. During the cleaning process the vacuum stays attached with negative pressure ensuring that all of the dust is sucked into the vacuum system and out of your ducts.

Vanderford Air technicians fix a lot of broken air conditioners each week. We know how frustrating it can be when you get home and the house is roasting on a 98 degree Texas summer. There are so many things that can go wrong. Where do you even start? Below is a list of a few of the most common symptoms and their causes. This might be a good list to help find the cause of your problem. You can also give us a call day or night and well send a repair technician to your home FAST! Call 281-557-2665.
A Dirty Air Filter: Dirty air filters cause restriction in air flow. This restriction can freeze up the evaporator coil causing the unit to stop cooling. It will still blow some air, but it will likely be just slightly cool.
A Clogged Drain Line: A clogged drain line causes water to leak either outside your home or worse yet, thru your ceiling. Most times it’s just a matter of clearing the clog and adding some algae preventative to keep it from happening. Worse case though, the main drain pan in the evaporator coil could be rusted out.
A clogged condensor coil
A Dirty Condensor Coil: The outdoor unit must have air flow when the fan is running. The coil often gets clogged up with grass clippings and dirt from mowers in the summer. Check and clean the outdoor coil at least a couple of times each year. A professional air conditioning technician can clean this coil with a solution that will bubble out all of the debris out of the tiny fins. A dirty condensor coil will cause your unit not to cool and it will run up your electric bill.
A Dirty Evaporator Coil: A dirty evaporator coil is usually caused by running the system without an air filter. This is a definite no-no. Dirt, dander, pet hair can clog an evaporator FAST and with the condensation that normally forms on these coil it makes for an almost mud like mess. A dirty evaporator will cause the unit to ice up and stop cooling. It will also run up your utility bills. If your evaporator is stopped up, have it professionally cleaned.
A Shorted Contactor
Shorted Contactor: The contactor is what powers up the compressor. It is one of the most used parts on the unit. Electricity flows thru it and it sucks the contact down. If it is burnt up you will most likely see a charred and burnt are on the contacts. A shorted contactor will cause your unit not to work at all. Electrical components should be tested and replaced by a licensed AC contractor.
Shorted Run Capacitor: The run capacitor is usually a little oval; silver looking can
mounted in the electrical portion of the outdoor unit. Its job is to make the motor run. A shorted run capacitor will sometimes look like the top is domed out. Like it exploded inside. Sometimes they show no physical signs of malfunction. They can be tested by an AC technician with a meter. Again leave the electrical components to an expert!
This is just the “short list” of what the most common problems may be. Your air conditioning system is one of the most expensive and complicated system in your home. Check the common things yourself, like the air filter and the outdoor condensor coil but leave the rest up to the experts at Vanderford Air.
One of our experienced air conditioning technicians can find the problem and fix it right the first time. Please call 281-557-2665.
